Microway and Nvidia to Present Tesla GPU Webinar
January 22, 2009Kingston, MAâJanuary 15, 2009â Microway today announced its NVIDIA Tesla S1070-based high density Number SmasherÂ® GPU-Clusters. This configuration, along with Microwayâs WhisperStationâ¢-PSC Tesla Personal Supercomputer, will be included in a special webinar Microway and Nvidia are hosting on January 22nd, 2009 at 11 AM PST, 2 PM Eastern.
The key presenter is Sumit Gupta, Ph.D., Senior Product Manager of Tesla GPU Computing at Nvidia. Dr. Gupta will present an in-depth talk on GPU Computing and the CUDA parallel programming model with support for OpenCL. Participants will learn about:
- WhisperStation-PSC Tesla Personal Supercomputer
- NumberSmasher High Density S1070 GPU Clusters
- How to achieve TFLOPS supercomputing performance with GPUs.
- One lucky participant will be chosen during the GPU Webinar to win an NVIDIAÂ® Teslaâ¢ C1060 Computing Processor (valued at over $1600!)

Microwayâs early involvement in GPU computing over the past several years has earned them recognition from NVIDIA as a Tesla Preferred Provider and PartnerForce Premier partner. Microwayâs Tesla PSCs and Clusters with the CUDA SDK are accelerating the âtime-to-discoveryâ in many important HPC applications by 10x to 40x. GPUâs massive performance and power efficiency are transforming scientistsâ approaches to applications in fields such as Molecular Dynamics, Quantum Chemistry, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Medical Imaging, Electromagnetics/Electrodynamics, Weather, Atmospheric and Ocean modeling, and Computational Finance.
Key benefits of each Tesla GPU include a massively multi-threaded architecture with 240 floating point processor cores, 933 GFLOPS Single Precision Floating Point throughput with support for Double Precision, and 4 GB High-Speed Memory at 102 GBytes/s bandwidth.
Recently, Microway built and delivered a 24 node computational cluster containing 48 Tesla GPUs for a large research laboratory with a performance rating of over 40 TFLOPS.
Whisperstation-PSC and NumberSmasher GPU-accelerated Linux clusters with high speed InfiniBand interconnect are available on Microwayâs GSA contract. Custom configurations with Linux or Windows and a variety of disk and graphic options arrive at the customerâs site ready to run with CUDA installed.
